Police: Homewood Man Tried to Lure Teen Into Porn Truck

A 48-year-old man is charged in connection with an attempt to lure a teenager into his modified truck, police say.

A 48-year-old Homewood man was charged with disorderly conduct after police said he attempted to lure a teenage girl into his pickup truck, which was filled with sex toys and pornography and had been modified to include a handcuff device on the dashboard.

Steven D. Dutton, of Riegel Oaks Lane, admitted approaching the Homewood girl but portrayed his intentions as innocent, telling investigators he only wanted to take her for a ride, police said.

The teen told police she was walking northbound on Riegal at 186th Place on Sunday around 4:45 p.m., when the man later identified as Dutton approached her. Dutton began asking the girl to get in the car, telling her he would give her a ride home, but she ignored him, police said. 

Dutton began asking the girl where she lived, and if she had a boyfriend, at which point the girl broke her silence to state that her home was nearby, and the man drove away, according to the report.

The teen then called police to report being approached by Dutton, but while she was on the phone, Dutton returned and stared at her, causing her to fear for her safety, police said.

Dutton then drove off a second time, but police used the license plates to locate the truck parked outside his Riegel Oaks residence, according to the report. 

The officer talked to Dutton about approaching the girl, and he responded, "I'm sorry, I was just asking her for a ride." 

While talking to him, the officer observed "in plain sight" a handcuff device attached to a bar that was attached to the passenger-side dashboard, with a small towel draped over it. 

Asked if officers could search his pickup truck, Dutton agreed, saying that "there are some sex toys in there."

Within the vehicle, police found a red lunchbox that contained women's underwear, as well as a black leather bag that contained rope, numerous sets of handcuffs, a whip, a dildo and pornography that included "numerous" writings about bondage and torture, according to the report.

Police transported Dutton to the scene, where the teen identified him as the man who harassed her, while her father then signed a complaint for disorderly conduct.

Dutton is scheduled to appear in Markham Court on that charge at 9 a.m. on June 29, in Room 206 at the Markham Courthouse.

Take a DNA sample from this pervert. Who drives around with a handcuff device on their dashboard and a stash of sex toys. Disgusting.

Police took him back to the scene where the victim identified her... I'm guessing the victim was called and asked to return to the scene. I hope that the scene of the crime was not very near her home, because, well, now the pervert knows where she lives. Scary. I agree with Joel. Get this pervert's DNA and for goodness sake keep an eye on this guy. He is a walking/driving violent offender in the making, if not an offender already.

I agree, this guy is an accident waiting to happen....Hopefully his court date will straighten him out, but I would keep a tail on this weirdo as much as feasibly possible until his court date.

Is this guy out on bail? Because I think we'd all like a description of the truck.
